About

One Man Movie (OMM) is a short, 6-8 minute action flick that is being made entirely by myself. I'm doing the writing, directing, acting, editing, music, graphics, and promotional stuff with no help from anyone else. And no, I did not build the camera from scratch, write the software, create the fonts, effects packs, nor the characters clothing. Those are all props and tools. What's a man without his tools? Despite the the short length of the film, it will be weeks (months?) from now before it is completed due to the technical craziness required in order to have multiple characters played by the same person coexist and interact on the same screen. It shouldn't be a problem though. Just time consuming. This blog will follow my day-to-day experiences on developing and releasing the film, mainly because I need SOMEONE to rant to so I don't leak it to real life people. I started the project in early September, when I wrote the story and created the musical score. From then until late September, I fleshed out the story, collected props, and finally bought a slightly better camera. Filming began in late September.

Rough Start

The first day of filming was today. I filmed all the scenes that are in the first 45 seconds, minus two.

I'm not particularly happy about how my characters turn out. I swear to god, I think I'm autistic or something. My voice and facial expressions are weird. I had to lower the pitch of my voice during editing to be comfortable with listening to it, and I already have a super-deep voice as it is (or so they say). Also, I'm not fond of the camera quality in some angles either. What I've edited together looks like crap right now.

In summary, today was a rough day that was quite demoralizing.

But here's an OLD video that I made for fun:

Enjoy. Don't make fun of the satchel, it's Jack Bauer's satchel.


and sorry, I didn't hit most of you back today. It's okay, I can handle a day without all your support. I'll be back tomorrow.
